Village Swaraj

by M. K. Gandhi

In the future set-up we shall have only two things, the village and the world. We may have the names of countries on the map for the sake of convenience, but in reality, there will be no intermediary between the world and the village. All the authority concerning the material side of life will rest with the village. The village will have power to order its own life. The power of moral advancement of the whole world will rest in the world centre. The districts or the States will only be the agents of the village community. Thus we shall have the village at the base and the World Authority at the centre. Human society will be organized on the basis of small village communities of, say, 2 to 3 thousand souls each. There would be real fraternity and co-operation in the village community. There would be no private ownership. The village will be a model of corporate life. The world centre will be the ultimate co-ordinating link between these primary communities. —VINOBA, Bhoodan, 8–9–’62

ગાંધીજીના જીવન-વિચાર પર ગીતાજીનો એક અનોખો પ્રભાવ જોવા મળે છે. તદુપરાંત ગીતા વિષે ગાંધીજીના વિવેચનો અને મંતવ્યો અન્ય ધાર્મિક અનુવાદો કરતાં નોખા તારી આવે છે. રોજબરોજના પત્રો અને ભાષણોમાં આપેલ દ્રષ્ટાંતો ઉપરાંત સંપૂર્ણ અધ્યયન-અનુવાદ-ટીકા જે બરાબર દાંડીકૂચના દિવસે પ્રકાશિત થયો તેને ગાંધીજીએ અનાસક્તિયોગ નામ આપ્યું. આ પુસ્તક તે અનાસક્તિયોગમાં ગાંધીજીની મૂળ ઈચ્છાના આધારે તેમના અવસાન પછી મહાદેવભાઈના અંગ્રેજી અનુવાદ, કિશોરભાઇ મશરૂવાળાના સૂચનો, શ્રી વિનોબાજીની ગીતાઈ અને ગાંધીજી સાથેની અગાઉની ચર્ચાના ઉમેરા સાથે કાકાસાહેબ કાલેલકરનું સંપાદન છે જેમાં ગાંધીજી ના વિચાર સ્પષ્ટ પ્રગટ થાય છે.

Satya Ej Ishwar Chhe

All Men Are Brothers

by Mahatma Gandhi Krishna Kripalani

A great teacher appears once in a while. Several centuries may pass by without the advent of such a one. That by which he is known is his life. He first lives and then tells others how they may live likewise. Such a teacher was Gandhi. These Selections from his speeches and writings compiled with great care and discrimination by Shri Krishna Kripalani will give the reader some idea of the workings of Gandhi’s mind, the growth of his thoughts and the practical techniques which he adopted. … We live in an age which is aware of its own defeat and moral coarsening, an age in which old certainties are breaking down, the familiar patterns are tilting and cracking. … The human mind in all its baffling strangeness and variety produces contrary types, a Buddha or a Gandhi, a Nero or a Hitler. It is our pride that one of the greatest figures of history lived in our generation, walked with us, spoke to us, taught us the way of civilized living. … Plato said long ago : ‘There always are in the world a few inspired men whose acquaintance is beyond price.’

Bapu Mari Maa

by Manubahen Gandhi

કુમારી મનુબહેન ગાંધીના, भावनगर समाचारમાં પ્રસિદ્ધ થયેલા આ ડઝનેક લેખો વાંચનારને પસંદ પડ્યા વિના રહેશે નહીં. બહેન મનુનો લેખ લખવાનો, હું ધારું છું કે, આ પહેલો જ પ્રયાસ છે. પૂ. બાપુજીના સ્વભાવ અને છેવટના કાર્ય પર એ સારો પ્રકાશ નાખે છે એ એનું મહત્ત્વ છે. 1946ના અંતમાં પોતે પૂ. બાપુજી જોડે નોઆખાલીમાં જોડાયાં ત્યારથી એણે ત્યાંની ડાયરી પણ રાખી છે. તેનો કેટલોક ભાગ शिक्षण अने साहित्यમાં ક્રમશ: આવે છે. નોઆખાલીનું મિશન શરૂ થયું ત્યારથી પૂ. બાપુજી સાથે એ જ એક કાયમનાં સાથી હતાં, એ કારણથી એની નોંધ બહુ મહત્ત્વની થશે, અને વાચક એ બહેનને આ લખવા માટે ધન્યવાદ આપ્યા વિના રહેશે નહીં. પૂજ્ય બાપુજી જાતે જ બહેન મનુની ‘મા’ બન્યા હતા. આથી પુસ્તકના નામનો ખુલાસો થશે.

The End of an Epoch

by Manubahen Gandhi

"Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, on behalf of the Ministry of Education, asked me to undertake the job of giving series of talks on the life of Mahatma Gandhi to schools and colleges in different parts of the country. During the course of my talks, I had the opportunity of coming into contact with the student community. In almost every city I visited, I was asked by the students to write a booklet on the last days of Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba. This pamphlet has been written to satisfy their demand. I hope that my student friends as well as other readers of Gandhian literature will be pleased with this effort of mine. [From Author’s Introduction]"

Understanding Global Cultures: Metaphorical Journeys Through 34 Nations, Clusters of Nations, Continents, and Diversity

by Martin J. Gannon Rajnandini K. Pillai

In the fully updated Sixth Edition of Understanding Global Cultures: Metaphorical Journeys Through 34 Nations, Clusters of Nations, Continents, and Diversity, authors Martin J. Gannon and Rajnandini Pillai present the cultural metaphor as a method for understanding the cultural mindsets of individual nations, clusters of nations, continents, and diversity in each nation. A cultural metaphor is any activity, phenomenon, or institution that members of a given culture consider important and with which they identify emotionally and/or cognitively, such as the Japanese garden and American football. This cultural metaphoric approach identifies three to eight unique or distinctive features of each cultural metaphor and then discusses 34 national cultures in terms of these features. The book demonstrates how metaphors are guidelines to help outsiders quickly understand what members of a culture consider important.

The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse

by Nicholas Gannon

The stand-alone sequel to The Doldrums, which the New York Times called “a dreamy charmer of a book,” is a second tour-de-force by author-illustrator Nicholas Gannon. It brims with the spirit of exploration and celebrates the bond of friendship. The exquisite package features Gannon’s distinctive full-color art throughout, as well as black-and-white spot illustrations.
